PITTSBURGH (AP) - More than 300 western Pennsylvania properties valued collectively at more than $108 million have had their tax exemptions revoked.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported (https://bit.ly/2ibvxQ9 ) Thursday the properties were added to Allegheny County’s tax roll between late 2013 and this month.

Data from the Department of Administrative Services indicates the county’s general fund could receive an additional $500,000. Municipalities and schools could receive millions.

The county in 2007 adopted a process for reviewing whether thousands of parcels should retain tax breaks.

The review, to be completed every three years, wasn’t initiated until late 2013. The county has since mailed letters requesting proof of exempt status for each parcel.



Newly taxable properties include volunteer fire departments, real estate groups, land trusts, faith-based groups and nursing homes.
